Healthcare organizations and their business associates face a Sept. 23 deadline for compliance with the new rule, which substantially modifies the HIPAA privacy, security and enforcement rules. In addition, the rule spells out new guidelines for assessing whether a security incident is a reportable breach. The regulation also expands the definition of business associates to include more vendors, including e-prescription gateways and health information exchanges.
The new HIPAA Omnibus Resource Center, sponsored by Experian, offers interviews with federal regulators and compliance experts; feature stories on key compliance issues; commentary on timely subjects as well as in-depth news coverage.
Topics covered include: rule enforcement; HIPAA modification; breach reporting requirements; consumer rights; business associate provisions; and key privacy and technology issues.
Now available in the resource center are:
- Coverage of the Department of Health and Human Services' HIPAA enforcement and other programs, including plans to issue HIPAA Omnibus guidance and amp up training;
- Compliance insights from a top federal privacy officer;
- Insights about the rule targeted to business associates and smaller clinics.
The resource center also provides access to topical white papers, research and webinars.
